I’ve never been a big Death Cab fan, but “I Will Follow You Into The Dark” is such a great fucking song.

Poor persecuted rich people can never get a break, amirite?

Holy crap, people realize The Cure has more than the same three songs right? And does one really want to risk being the band that “covered that 311 song”?

Yeah it’s a weird list. I’m glad at all the love for The Cure and New Order, but there were some weird omissions, for sure.

Listening to the All Dogs album now. I like it! Solid guitar pop.

That is also a good point! I feel like Disintegration IS a very personal album, but written and recorded in a way that is very universally appealing. Beach House is more idiosyncratic in their personal approach to songwriting, which is no less valid by any means. I just don’t think they’re in the same class as The Cure, which is a class they’re probably shooting for, but I can’t fault them for falling a little short because The Cure is a very high bar!

I like Beach House, but they just make me want to listen to Disintegration (one of my all-time favorites). I other words, I feel like other bands have done Beach House better than Beach House. But they are definitely good, and good songwriters.

It still in the URL though! In thousands of years, when civilization is rebuilding itself and trying to find answers about its past, they will stumble upon this article and the mystery will captivate the world.

Haha total premature post. What I meant to post:

I HATE it when bands make the audience sing whole sections of a song. I came to the show to watch YOU sing the goddamn song! Not to hear the drunk bro next to me sing your hits.

It has always bothered me how The Doors aren’t as “cool” as other 60s bands these days. No one else really has sounded like them since. Sure, some of Morrison’s acid-poet stuff gets a bit overwrought, but you can see similar weaknesses in many bands of the 60s and 70s (the darkest depths of Mordor, anyone?). The Doors are amazing, straight up.

As far as the ranking, I pretty much agree, except maybe I’d switch Waiting for the Sun and Strange Days. Great list and writeup, guys!

I like it! It sounds like their better 00s work, which is just fine with me.
